The kite runner by Marc Forster( Visual )

Finding Neverland director Marc Forster adapts author Khaled Hosseini's critically acclaimed novel about two childhood best friends forever torn apart as their country is ravaged by endless war and bitter strife. As children, Amir (Khalid Abdalla) and Hassan were inseparable; their long days under azure Kabul skies often spent getting into innocent mischief or preparing for the highly anticipated kite-fighting tournament. When the day of the tournament arrives, however, a glorious victory is quickly offset by a timorous act of betrayal that ultimately serves as the catalyst for catastrophe. Not long after that fateful day, Amir moves away to America, leaving his old friend behind just as the ominous specter of war turns tragically tangible. Two decades later, Amir returns to Afghanistan to find his beloved homeland has now fallen under the iron-fisted rule of the Taliban. Still, all hope for redemption hasn't been lost just yet, because now that Amir stands face to face with the irrepressible secrets that he struggled so vigilantly to bury, he will receive one last chance to make peace with the past, and lay the groundwork for a brighter future

In a remote area of Northern Kenya, activist Tessa Quayle is found brutally murdered. Tessa's companion, a doctor, appears to have fled the scene, and all the evidence points to a crime of passion. Members of the British High Commission in Nairobi assume that Tessa's widower, their mild-mannered and unambitious colleague Justin Quayle, will leave the matter to them. Haunted by remorse and jarred by rumors of his late wife's infidelities, Quayle surprises everyone by embarking on a personal odyssey that will take him across three continents. Using his privileged access to diplomatic secrets, Justin risks his own life and will stop at nothing to expose the truth - a conspiracy more far-reaching and deadly than Quayle could ever have imagined

"Ein pensionierter Agent des britischen Geheimdiensts wird wieder aktiviert, um einen "Maulwurf" in den eigenen Reihen dingfest zu machen. Suggestive Verfilmung eines Romans von John Le Carré, der konsequent Helden- und Männlichkeitsbilder des Agentenfilm-Genres dekonstruiert. Vor dem tristen Szenario des Kalten Kriegs zeigt der listenreich, labyrinthisch und betont langsam entwickelte Film eine unglamouröse Welt der Spionage, in der Misstrauen und Undurchsichtigkeit regieren und das Politische und Professionelle auch privateste Beziehungen unterwandert, wobei Ideale und Loyalitäten auf der Strecke bleiben."
